    I really enjoyed this hostel! The rooftop area was very nice, I met some wonderful people, and the facilities were always clean. There is also a great café on the first floor. Would recommend this place to anyone!

    Lovely hostel which we stayed in for a couple of nights. The roof top is a nice place to be social with others. Good extra facilities and in good location. Showering/ toilets are basic but do the job! Good location for a wonder around the city and use the train/buses

    Just a quick stop over for us. Very close to major metro station making it easy to get about. Light from hallway came through the door at night, slightly annoying.

    It was an okay stay. We booked a private room and in the photos it had a window but the one we got didn’t. Room was supposed to have AC but they only turn it on at specific times at night not during the day. The common area is a rooftop, and there’s a cafe downstairs by the lobby but the cafe staff was a little rude, and said that the cafe is separate so we cannot just sit there without ordering anything. Bathrooms were not super clean either. Good location near the train station!

    The hostel was good for what we needed - a clean cheap place to stay. They served food in the cafe downstairs and the food exceeded my expectations and was great value for money. The bedroom was pretty small and doesn’t have privacy curtains or a reading light and it wasn’t a very social hostel (only spoke to 1 girl in our room), but I would still stay here again. The staff on the whole were lovely but there was 1 woman who served us food who was very rude, which was a shame. We had a dim light in the room

    The COVID19 did a great deal of changes to hotel/hostel scenes all over the world. This hostel, PODS Kuala Lumper, was one of the best in the town only a year ago, but now it's one of the worst. There is nothing good I can say about this place, now.
